Coconuts are quite popular in the Chinese market. This is the time of year when coconuts from Thailand reach peak sales. The production season of Thai coconuts encountered some problems earlier this year. Dry weather at the start of the production season reduced the overall production volume. The supply volume in January was much lower than usual. However, now that supply is growing again, the market is once again stable. The coconuts from Thailand are not the only coconuts to enjoy peak sales, this is also the peak of sales season for coconuts from Hainan Island.
Ms. Tang Guoguo of Specialized Subtropical Fruit Trade City recently shared her analysis of current conditions in the Chinese coconut market: "Our sales suffered the consequences of the corona virus outbreak, just as most other companies. Many of our workers were unable to reach work. Our clients could only order from home. And we were unable to harvest coconuts in our plantation. We are now fully recovered and operating business as usual. We are also pleased to see that market demand for our coconuts has greatly increased in the last few weeks."
"Our current sales volume is quite alright. We sell several thousand coconuts per day. Although we can supply green coconuts throughout the year, the price also changes throughout the year. The current price is quite reasonable. We are able to secure a comfortable market position because we can offer a steady supply of top-quality coconuts at reasonable prices. Our current price is 66 yuan [9.33 USD] per set of 9 green coconuts. We also have a purchasing team that works around the clock to select the highest quality coconuts for our clients.
"At the moment, we are only selling our coconuts online. This is a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, our current sales volume is slightly higher than around this time last year. This is because many people are stuck in isolation and they enjoy shopping from home to make their life more convenient. Many fruit markets are still recovering from the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic and sales are only slowly returning to normal levels. However, consumer demand for coconuts is growing stronger every day. We are pleased to be able to supply top-quality coconuts to all our clients. We started online sales of our coconuts about two years ago, but only now have we seen our online sales volume rapidly expand."
